Fernando Llorente scored an own goal on his first Premier League start of the season, but Harry Winks headed a late winner at Fulham.
2018/2019 Premier League
England midfielder Alli had headed Spurs level, cancelling out a first-half own goal scored by Fernando Llorente - the striker deputising for the injured Harry Kane, who is out until March.
Alli could well be set to join Kane on the sidelines after limping off in the closing stages, but what looked like becoming a nightmare Sunday for Spurs at Craven Cottage was saved at the death by Winks.
17'OWN GOAL! Fulham 1-0 Tottenham (Llorente)
A nightmare for Llorente on his return to the line-up as the Spaniard diverts Seri's corner into the bottom corner past Lloris. He was unsighted, but was slow to react in the middle as the ball struck off his boot and rolled over the line to put the home side ahead.
40' OFFSIDE! Mitrovic's goal disallowed
Babel raided down the left flank and sent a cross to the back post for Schurrle to strike at goal. The German struck the ball crisply with his boot, but Lloris reacted well to palm the ball away. Mitrovic pounced on the rebound to head home, but then saw the flag raised for offside.
51'GOAL! Fulham 1-1 Tottenham (Alli)
Spurs are back on level terms as Alli heads home from close range. Ream failed to connect with a clearance on the edge of the box and Eriksen pounced. He floated a precise cross to the back post for Alli to attack.
93' GOAL! Fulham 1-2 Tottenham (Winks)
Spurs snatch the three points in the final minute of the game. Winks makes a late run at the back post to latch on to N'Koudou's deep cross from the left flank. He heads the ball down into the ground and it bounces beyond Rico's outstretched hand into the net.
